You Can't Mop it up

I’ve been paying close attention to the behaviour of my fish recently and they certainly appear to be spawning. According to the information I received, fish require something soft to lay eggs on. You can find a number of specialised nests in aquatic shops, but I’ve heard an idea of using a mop head instead. All being well, this isn’t a joke but a legitimate suggestion. If not, I am sure the fish will find some other use for it.

Today I’ve been busy in councillor mode working on a complaint file on behalf of a parishioner. The complaint is complex, but I enjoy the challenge and I will ensure that with the support of my team we will give the complainant the best possible chance of winning.

For the last few weeks, I’ve been busy working on the garden and planting flowers, fruit trees and shrubs. The garden is looking far more colourful than any of the previous years and now I’ve been here for 7 years. My garden definitely benefited from lockdown restrictions. 

Luckily, garden centres remained open for most of the time during the Covid-19 pandemic as visiting them is a therapeutic experience.
